How it all Began -- Part IV -- The Final Piece

Read here first ...
then read here second ...
then read here third .... and now you are caught up for the final piece of the puzzle. :)

...

My in-laws decided to take a leap of faith, and bought me an incredibly awesome epson printer. It is the Epson Stylus R1900 Ink Jet Printer .... IT IS AMAZING!!!! I highly recommend it.




I worked very hard on the invitations, and did exactly what the clients wanted.

  


They turned out so awesome, and I was really proud of all my work. When I thought back on the process, I realized I could do this and not get bored with it. I enjoyed every minute of designing, printing, cutting ... and when I got paid it felt like I hardly did any work.

Isn't that what anyone want in a job?? To feel like they could do it forever and never get tired of it.

So, after doing the wedding invitations I decided I could do more. I put an add on facebook and in just a few hours I has several hits from people highly interested in my work. {Since the beginning I have since updated my facebook page to here http://www.facebook.com/pages/Christina-Studio-Designs/48749968030?ref=ts} Become my fan!!!! :)

REALLY? They liked my designs??? How cool is that!?!?!?

After facebook, I worked on Craigslist. Again, the idea TOOK OFF. WOWZERS. {Craigslist is still my biggest selling tool.}

After Craigslist really took off, I started trying out all the social media networks.





I started this blog ... http://christinastudiodesigns.blogspot.com



I started a twitter ... http://twitter.com/ChristinaDesgn {become my fan!}







I created an etsy store ... http://chrissywatson.etsy.com







I updated and perfected my facebook page .... http://www.facebook.com/pages/Christina-Studio-Designs/48749968030?ref=ts




In the past year while my life has changed before my eyes, I have sold 


19 items on Etsy


Sold 12 items from Facebook Advertising


Have 90 followers on Twitter


Done 43 Weddings


It has been over a year since I was laid off from MITRE. It was devastating at the time, but now I can look back and know that God's hand was on it the whole time. I don't think I could ever imagine myself spending all day at a desk again. LOL


I am blessed. It is because of people like YOU!
Thanks for blessing me.




:)


Blessings to you,
